Transcript of Foreshadowing

Foreshadowing Foreshadowing is the use of hints or clues to suggest
what will happen later in literature/music/and movies. For example In a scary movie, if someone says, "I'll be right back"
What does that usually mean will ACTUALLY happen? Before we jump into literature, let's practice with some movie clips first! What about in the movie "Titanic"? Even though we know how the story ends, the creators STILL use foreshadowing to give us clues as to what might happen..... "This ship is unsinkable".... "there aren't enough lifeboats for everyone".... Bambi's mother warns him about the dangers of hunters and that he should never go in the meadow alone.

What might this foreshadow? In Walk Two Moons, Sharon Creech constantly gives the reader hints and clues about the end of the book

Usually it is through things that Sal says, or the things she remembers others saying to her. When we read stories from now on keep a critical eye out for hints of possible foreshadowing!
It is a storytelling technique that, when used skillfully, gets viewers involved and thinking about the plot
unfolding before them because they are picking up hints about what may soon happen
When Sal speaks of her mother "resting peacefully, what does that make us think?

When Sal's dad explains that "sometimes people come back" after Phoebe's mom leaves.... what do we think? These are just two examples. Can you recall more?
